A Big Pivot

Wednesday, July 27th, 2022

A lot has happened since my last post - long story short, I think I've managed to get PromptBase working after almost binning the idea. I'll rewind.

On Saturday morning, I got an email saying I had finally got access to DALL-E, OpenAI's new model for generating images from text.

DALL-E uses prompts like GPT-3 to get it to generate images, e.g. generate an image of "a lego version of Homer Simpson in 8K UHD on a white background".

PromptBase was already set up and ready to sell GPT-3 prompts, so I wondered: could I change PromptBase to also sell quality DALL-E image prompts?

It took about 5 hours of work, but I got PromptBase into a good state where someone could list a DALL-E prompt for sale.

Next step was to create some killer prompts to sell. Here are the images generated by some of my best ones:

I started posting these outputs on Reddit, Twitter, Instagram and Discord, then dropping links to the prompts on PromptBase.

Then, side story, the past couple of days I've been in Brisbane - and whilst I was walking about looking at Koalas, I kept getting notifications about PromptBase sales - it was so cool!

Damn, koalas are cute

I've also got a queue of people lining up to start selling their own prompts, which I need to review.

Back in the saddle now and excited to see where this goes.
